Essien on how Azerbaijani move happened
Ghana and Chelsea legend, Michael Essien, has explained how the move to play his football for Azerbaijani’s Sabail FK took place.
The 36-year-old was last week confirmed to have joined Sabail until 2020, including an agreement to begin a coaching role with the club’s U19 side.
I was here three weeks ago. Had a good chat with the club and they told me about the project. I thought about it, liked it and here we are," Essien told the club’s website.
"It's a different thing to what I have seen before. Looks interesting and exciting, so happy to be here," Essien added.
